Hey guys, I'm back with yet another thread lol
This time I am posting one for tracking and updates on youth players that have potential to become players on the repka. I think this is especially important now-a-days because it seems pretty apparent we are in the beginning of a new Golden Generation for Croatia, with so many talented young players working their way up the ranks.
When thinking about this budding generation I kept coming back to 20 years ago, which is when the earliest of them were born. And what happened @ 25 years ago but the war for independence. I believe the war is at least partially responsible for the 'bust' period that was the players coming out @ 5 years ago, and it also obviously scattered the diaspora even more. Then after the war was over, slowly things started returning to their normal cycle and it was a better environment for having children, and in around 20 years those children will be on the fringe of the NT if they have talent and we find ourselves in the beginning of our 'boom' period!
So that's where we find ourselves today, we had a few dead years with out much talent reaching their potential but now we are excited to see so many highly touted prospects that you would have to think several of them fulfill their potential. Yes I'm calling it now, at least 3 star players will come out of this list:
